"American Impressionism: Treasures from the Smithsonian American Art Museum"
2000-08-20 until 2000-10-29
Minneapolis Institute of Arts
Minneapolis, MN, USA

This exhibition presents the best works by artists influenced by the light and color of European Impressionism. Following the example of James McNeill Whistler, a generation of Americans studied abroad to absorb the new palette and compositions that were modernizing painting. Landscapes, figure and still life paintings by Childe Hassam, John Twachtman, Thomas Dewing, Maria Oakey Dewing, William Merrit Chase, Mary Cassatt and Theodore Robinson marked a distinct departure from academic styles.

In Boston, Edmund Tarbell, Frank Benson, Robert Reid and Frederick Carl Frieseke developed a genteel version of Impressionism related to the culture of that city. Artists such as Daniel Garber and Maurice Prendergast carried Impressionism further toward Modernism by creating a new tapestry-like effect in their landscapes and cityscapes. Taken together, these Impressionists foretold a new internationalism and modern view of life as America approached the twentieth century.

American Impressionism is one of eight exhibitions in Treasures to Go, from the Smithsonian American Art Museum, touring the nation through 2002.
